For those of you with Digital Cable, old episodes of "The Mad Dash" are now running on Canada's new GamesTV channel.

Unfortunately, they decided to try updating it with a more modern closing theme, but otherwise, it's just as we remember it.

Apparently, if there's enough interest, they may even do a "New Mad Dash"!
